In many countries around the world, “blasphemy” and “religious insult” are still crimes that can lead to prison or death. The campaign was launched after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in France in January 2015 by the EHF and the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU) and aims at repealing blasphemy and related laws worldwide. It is now run by the International Coalition Against Blasphemy Laws which gather many international and national organisations. With this campaign, the EHF has also focused on the persistent blasphemy laws existing in EU countries and campaigned for their removal at European level.
